Age 2

In the early morning of the final battle, the Mexican Army advanced on the Alamo. Quickly being overrun, the Texian Soldiers quickly withdrew inside the building. The battle has often been overshadowed by events from the Mexican–American War, But the Alamo gradually became known as a national battle site and later named an official Texas State Shrine.

Name Meaning

English (northern): habitational name from any of the numerous places so called, for example in Lancashire, Northumberland, and West Yorkshire, from Old English hēah ‘high’ + tūn ‘enclosure’, ‘settlement’. This surname was taken to Ireland in the mid 17th century, and within Ireland is now mainly found in Ulster.
